With decades of grassroots experience and leadership, Coalition members have been at the forefront of the fight against corporate control of our food system and for a world where we all have access to fairly made, sustainable, good food. Working at multiple entry points for transformative change, Coalition members include:
|The Coalition of Immokalee Workers is a community-based organization of mainly Latino, Mayan Indian and Haitian immigrants working in low-wage jobs throughout the state of Florida. CIW fights for, among other things: a fair wage for the work we do, more respect on the part of our bosses and the industries where we work, better and cheaper housing, stronger laws and stronger enforcement against those who would violate workers’ rights, the right to organize on our jobs without fear of retaliation, and an end to forced labor in the fields.|
For 35 years, Corporate Accountability International and its members have led the way to protect people and save lives by waging and winning campaigns that challenge abusive corporations. Using a mix of grassroots activism and long-term corporate engagement, Corporate Accountability International works tirelessly to ensure corporations are held accountable for policies, practices, and products that endanger public health, the environment, and human rights.
Family Farm Defenders is a national nonprofit grassroots organization that promotes sustainable agriculture, rural justice, workers rights, animal welfare, consumer safety, fair trade, and food sovereignty.
Food & Water Watch works to ensure the food, water and fish we consume is safe, accessible and sustainably produced. So we can all enjoy and trust in what we eat and drink, FWW help people take charge of where their food comes from, keep clean, affordable, public tap water flowing freely to our homes, protect the environmental quality of oceans, force government to do its job protecting citizens, and educate about the importance of keeping the global commons — shared resources — under public control.
|Food Tank highlights hope and success in agriculture. They feature innovative ideas that are already working on the ground, in cities, in kitchens, in fields and in laboratories in order to bring more attention, more research, and ultimately more funding to be replicated and scaled-up.|
|Food Chain Workers Alliance is a coalition of worker-based organizations whose members plant, harvest, process, pack, transport, prepare, serve, and sell food, organizing to improve wages and working conditions for all workers along the food chain.|
Celebrating local sustainable food, Sustainable Table educates consumers on food-related issues and works to build community through food.
Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy works locally and globally at the intersection of policy and practice to ensure fair and sustainable food, farm and trade systems.
|Just Harvest USA aims to build a more just and sustainable food system with a focus on establishing fair wages, humane working conditions and fundamental rights for farmworkers. We achieve this through broad public education and mobilizing support for farmworker-led and other grassroots campaigns.|
Land Stewardship Project works to foster an ethic of stewardship for farmland, promote sustainable agriculture, and develop sustainable communities.
|The Real Food Challenge serves as both a campaign and a network. The campaign is to increase the procurement of real food on college and university campuses, with the national goal of 20% real food by 2020. By leveraging their purchasing power we can catalyze the transformation of the larger food system. The network offers a chance for students and their allies (those working on the campaign along with those who’ve yet to sign on) to make connections, learn from one another, and grow the movement.|
|Slow Food USA is part of a global, grassroots organization with supporters in over 150 countries who believe that food and farming should be sources of health and well being for everyone. Through international and national advocacy, local projects and bringing people together through the common language of food, Slow Food members and supporters are making it easier to access real food that is good for us, good for those who produce it and good for the planet.
|Small Planet Institute seeks to identify the core, often unspoken, assumptions and forces — economic, political, and psychological — now taking the planet in a direction that as individuals none of us would choose. We disseminate this deeper understanding of root causes.|
